Before and After

Photo documentation is my least favorite part of this experience. But I know that it helped me to see other people's photos, while I was deciding whether to get banded or not. And it's a good illustration of how this can be a long, slow journey.

Pre-Op: 10/25/12     261 lbs

1/24/13     231 lbs

4/8/2013     215 lbs
How about that awesome farmer's tan I got last weekend? I may someday have to come to terms with the fact that I'm never going to like my stomach. All those years of being fat, plus that time I gestated a small human for 10 months, have really done a number on it. I don't see much difference between now and 15 lbs ago. But at least I can see a difference between surgery and today.

  3. I can see a big difference! Shrinking lady!

    I have the same thoughts about my stomach, I just don't think we will be friends. :)

  4. Thank you for sharing that. I just had my boyfriend take my before pictures. It was one of the harder things I've done. I cried and felt really horrible for a while. I'm much better now. Can't wait to get banded so I can begin that leg of this mission.

    1. I know that feeling well, Linda. But it will be worth it one day, to see how far you've come. Good luck!

  6. Really amazing to see the changes, huh? The shot from behind really emphasizes how small your waist is getting!

    1. That one is the biggest difference I see too! But then these photos are the only time I see that view anyway.

  7. Your tummy is a lot smaller! I never got around to taking before shots like this but I wish I had. You look great.
